Gozo is one of many Mediterranean islands. Here's one great reason why IT IS the island you need to visit!
On March 7, Gozo was chosen as the Best in the Mediterranean at the World's Best Sustainable Destinations, which were unveiled in the Awards Hall of ITB Berlin. The winners of this award were chosen from a total of 100 top-sustainable destinations. In fact, this is the most prestigious opportunity to showcase “green destinations” to the world.
It's about beaches
As an island in the Mediterranean sea, beaches, coves and secret inlets are a key attraction of the island both for locals and travellers. Gozo's beaches are second to none and in fact, many of Gozo's beaches are Blue Flag Mediterranean beaches
It's about diving and watersports
Beyond the beaches, Gozo provides opportunities for great diving adventures. There are many natural diving spots, reefs thriving with marine life and are in themselves fantastic diving wrecks sought by many of the divers who enjoy the thrill of wreck expeditions.
It's about culture
Gozitans are keen to celebrate what they passionately love and that can take many forms and expressions in a vareity of different arts. There is no doubt that the essence of the Gozitan identity is intrinsically interwoven with the summer feasts celebrating the patron saints of different villages. These feasts, with a typical Mediterranean flavour are a must for any traveller who happens to be in Gozo during the season.
For those who are after a dose of history, exploring Gozo is like walking through a history book. On every page there is a different story but one cannot ignore that the island is internationally acclaimed for its Citadel and Ġgantija temples. These temples which are the world's oldest freestanding structures raise many questions about the role that the island could have played at the centre of the Mediterranean sea in antiquity.
